	Boy, I was beginning to think that I was the only one
	who ever got scratched glasses from my M6. Thanks `g.huang'
	for the tip. It probably doesn't look too nice, but hey...
	if it works, don't knock it. As for me, I reserve one pair
	of my glasses for use with the M6. I think of them as my
	official `Leica' glasses! (It's the pair with the right
	lens scratched).
